The Brooklyn Cancer Center (TBCC), a partnership between New York Cancer & Blood Specialists (NYCBS), one of the leading oncology practices in the nation, and The Brooklyn Hospital Center (TBHC), an independent community hospital in Fort Greene/Downtown Brooklyn, marked a major milestone today by announcing the opening of its newly created center located at 86 Fleet Place in Downtown Brooklyn, providing a new home for the region’s top cancer care.

“NYCBS has bridged the gap for patients to receive high-quality cancer treatment close to home,” said Jeff Vacirca, MD, CEO of NYCBS. “The Brooklyn Cancer Center will bring state-of-the-art facilities, increased capacity, and the architectural atmosphere aligns with our world-class care.”

TBCC is staffed by top-ranked physicians, including Chief of Hematology/Oncology Maxim Shulimovich, MD, Asmat Ullah, MD, Shahzaib Nabi, MD, Shreya P. Goyal, MD, Minh-Phuong Huynh-Le, MD, and Kalimullah Quadri, MD, providing expert care and culturally sensitive services for patients with all types of cancer and blood disorders. Right in Downtown Brooklyn, patients can find a unique path to treatment with comprehensive support.

“This partnership means the very best comprehensive care for cancer patients is available right here in Brooklyn. We say this a lot—you don’t have to go across the bridge for excellent care—but that statement has never been more true when it comes to the complete range of services The Brooklyn Cancer Center offers, now in a spectacular setting, just a few blocks from the hospital,” said Gary G. Terrinoni, President and CEO of TBHC.
